Writing is my passion. I have an undying thirst and quest in the field of writing. Some eat, drink or use drugs when stressed; I write.

The mind and the body are closely connected, but the brain can affect how healthy the bodies are. The brain process emotions to think, solve problems, and assist you to engage in dialogue with others. However, did you know that when you take care of your brain, it takes much better care of you?

If you don’t get enough sleep. You risk the side effects of poor memory and less able to focus. But when the brain is healthy, it can be a great influence on how thoughts are generated. Also, plays an indispensable role in coordinating movement, assists you to maintain an upright posture, and balancing of the body on a daily. A Word of Wisdom about the mind, it can be your most powerful ally, or it very well works against you as your worst enemy.

The best-guaranteed way to ensure your mind operates as the most powerful ally is by being conscious of what you’re good at, and putting great use of the brain.

Once you use the mind, you must learn to get control of your thought process. To take control of your thought process, you must understand the impact of the mind. Also, you must bring down the mental processes of stress. You can take full control of your thoughts. It’s difficult, but it’s possible.

With so much capability of the brain, take advantage of the power of the mind. The mind can be the greatest hindrance or your biggest ally. It can clear the road and open the way for you or block you, causing all kinds of misery.

The brain is the most exceptional resource for any human. It is the opener of going to get the best grade in school or getting into the best college. The mind will help you achieve a job and a promotion. It can help you carry out a lot, yet until you learn the power of the brain, it stands to be your worst enemy over an ally. You get to choose, and there will be a time in your life when you can no longer put off choosing.

From the moment you begin your day, start the process of the mind, the brain is the opener of choices, And how you take care of your thoughts begins the power to decide. The current of thoughts goes on from the moment you get out of bed and walk. You start the morning with the choice to choose a shower or take a bath to get dressed. You can eat breakfast or just take a cup of coffee. Then brush your teeth with a spin brush or just a regular toothbrush.

As you drive to work, you face the decision to talk on the telephone during the ride or tell the person you will call them back, hang up and safely travel to your destination. When you find yourself with such an important decision, choose wisely.

It is my suggestion that you train your mind and your thoughts. The reason being is that the thought process is there and like a relentless rational noise until you fall asleep. By changing your thoughts, you can enhance your life. Your mind comes with extraordinary power– use it well.


There's a well-known quote that says, “You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.” – James Allen. We all should pay attention to this powerful saying; it's a hint for the wise.

The mind can be your most powerful ally and your worst enemy. With this awareness, it’s essential to understand those negative thoughts will affect you mentally and physically and create poverty. Positive thoughts will create a life of abundance. Your thoughts have a significant effect on your life. You can understand your thoughts and make it your most reliable ally to be a powerful force.

Yes, you can use your thoughts as a creative force to process the mind, to be your most reliable ally and make a life filled with happiness. A specialist estimates that the human brain produces 70,000 thoughts per day, and that’s a lot of observations. Although you don’t have access to turn off or control the flow of your thoughts instantly, you have the next best thing, the ability to make it your most reliable ally.

Most of us probably don’t take a moment to regard what thoughts we think. If you take the time to pay attention to your thought process, most of them are useless, random thoughts that pass through the mind at an enormous speed.

You might not believe it, but the thoughts passing through your mind is just like being on a jam-packed train capable of running at a fast speed or on an airplane where it can fly at a higher capacity to get you to your destination in less time. With this awareness and knowing the mind can be an influential contributor or an enemy, you need to make sure the brain is your most dependable ally.

You need to know that you are a formidable force sitting in the driver's seat, controlling your thoughts. Never move over to the side passage and allow your fear-based thoughts to change your desires because it will affect your reality. You can take charge of your thought process, no matter what you believed or experienced in the past.

The mind can be like a busy bee or a diligent butterfly that flies around from one flower to the next, never being still. Although the mind goes on at a none stop, it is only when you need to focus on something particular that you might know the thought process, but on a busy day, you more than likely will not notice how the mind can be this ongoing, endless thinking habit.

For many centuries, our marvelous brain has evolved to decide, the right or wrong choice, it responds quickly to all situations. It even reacts to decision that can threats our safety and very hard to endure.

Negative thoughts can be a powerful effect on the brain; It comes with a lot of nonstop chatter that needs calming down. When negative thoughts generate, it brings about a change in the mind. When a person’s stress, grieves or worry, it deceives the brain into thinking whatever is going on is a threat that causes neurochemical changes. These changes create a harmful effect on your health and well-being.

What Positive Thought Does to the Brain?

When thoughts occupy, they release some kind of chemical. When positive thinking is created, there is growth in the brain, reinforcing and generating new synapses. When you are happy, it brings about positivity. The cortisol level decreases, and the brain produces serotonin; creating good health and well-being.

Just in case you are questioning how the mind can be a powerful ally and the worst enemy. The answer lies within the quote, “You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.” – James Allen

The mind and thoughts are haunting, and if we all would take the time to stop to consider that the circumstances in life are as they today because of the decisions made. The choices made can come with complete success or failure to make life a misery.

The life you are living is due to the things you’ve done or neglected to do. Your thoughts can leave you feeling glad to move forward or depressed, feeling worthless and at a standstill, wondering how to move ahead.
